Restricted free agent center Meyers Leonard has re-signed with the Portland Trail Blazers on a four-year, $41 million deal, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of the Vertical.

Leonard missed the final 21 games of the regular season after undergoing shoulder surgery, but played his best NBA season before the injury.

The 24-year-old played in 61 games, including 10 starts, averaging 8.4 points and 5.1 rebounds in 21.9 minutes per game.

The Trail Blazers have also signed former Golden State Warriors big man Festus Ezeli this summer and are hoping to keep restricted free agent Maurice Harkless.

Portland posted a 44–38 record in 2015–16, finishing fifth in the Western Conference standings.
